DP World has launched a unique global education programme for 8-14 year olds across our international network.
We aim to engage 34,000 children by 2020 with employees delivering a range of modules in local schools as part of their volunteering leave.
Working with a specialist agency and consulting with teachers, the content covers a wide range of topics to engage young people in ports, trade and logistics, a little-known and often overlooked part of the world economy.
Modules will come with guidance and delivery notes, lesson plans, student activities and worksheets when the programme is implemented later this year in seven languages – from Arabic and English to Hindi, Mandarin, French and Spanish. The first lessons have been piloted in the UAE , India, Pakistan, Senegal, the UK, Argentina and the Philippines and will be rolled out from June across the rest of DP World’s network in over six continents.
